THE BOY WHO CAME BACK Marc Almond - 1984 He woke to the sound of the birds in the morning Felt charged with a new lease of life Time to break out of his present surroundings A mother, a child and a wife He'd not said good-bye to his last thread of childhood It lay just beyond his front gate So he packed just a few things And he packed in his job And he prayed he'd not left it too late He turned and he said "Well we always have time, Time on our side And there's time for this boy to turn back" Joy held his heart As he took to the road Cast all his sorrow To the breeze Knew in his heart It was the right thing to do For he had to search out His belief Spring came and fall went The year ran away Love, hate and heartache ran too Felt himself drift Into memories of home And the loneliness he lived on through He turned and he said "Well we always have time, Time on our side And there's time for this boy to turn back" And he'd learnt about life But he'd lost out on love He was no longer only a boy There were lines on his face From the sun and the wind But no lines there through Laughter or joy Shoes full of holes But with fire in his soul He walked down the dirt beaten track Mother was gone But his wife and child were living on And they cried "It's the boy who came back" Goodbye through the evening Goodbye through the night Goodbye through the dreams Through the sleep Goodbye to our yesterdays Hello tomorrow It seems we were destined to meet He turned and he said "Well we always have time, Time on our side And there's time for this boy to turn back"
